Supergas” by Superflex. In 1997, Superflex installed and tested the first Superflex biogas system. The experiment was carried out at a small farm in central Tanzania, in co-operation with the African organisation SURUDE (Sustainable Rural Development). The plant produces approx. 3 cubic metres of gas per day from the dung from 2-3 cattle. This is enough for a family of 8-10 members for cooking purposes and to run one gas lamp in the evening.

»Space Junk Spotting« 2006, is a project composed of mechanical and programming equipment linked to a database at a U.S. government-owned space observatory; this database contains the fullest possible data on the extent of the pollution and presents remarkable scientific methods for determining the position of space junk. In this way, the wider Internet public is offered a folder of information about space debris, which is strewn across the popular three-dimensional interface Google Earth. The tactical potential of this catalogue is the possibility it provides for finding a creative and constructive solution to the problem of reusing material whose position in usable orbits is already determined, without the enormous initial costs that arise whenever rockets are shot into space. By Saso Sedlacek.


»Beggar 2.0« another project by Saso Sedlacek is a robot for the materially deprived in Tokyo. It is made of old electronics and computer spare parts. The original 1.0 was tested in Slovenian shopping malls where it is forbidden to beg, but no such rule was made for robots. The new upgrade version of Beggar robot made at IAMAS institute in Japan was tested in the beginning of July 2006 on Tokyo streets where begging isn’t really a frequent phenomena and where interface communication is ubiquitous.Video.

In »Cop Talk« (2005/2006), representatives from national police forces are invited to give presentations at art academies in Europe, illustrating the opportunities within such a career and encouraging students to join up. For a country to have an effective police force, its constituent employees should reflect the demographics of its society. It is perhaps inevitable that members of arts communities are under-represented in the nations policing and this presentation is an attempt to address this situation and to begin to reverse this bias. Project initiated by Chris Evans.

FM Radio Map. This map plots the location of FM commercial and pirate radio stations within London. The poster works in its own right as a piece of information design, but when connected to the modified radio it becomes part of the interface. Placing a metal contact onto each point enables us to listen to the sound broadcast live from that location. By Simon Elvins.
